Neil was born in Adelaide in 1963 and moved to Perth with his family in 1978. He then decided to pursue a career in graphic design and studied at Perth Technical College from 1980-1982. It was here that he developed his drawing and painting skills. In 1990 Neil established a highly successful business as a cartoonist/illustrator in Subiaco.
Always seeking to explore and expand his own boundaries as an artist, Neil trained in many fine art mediums, including but not exclusive to, print making, photography, painting, life drawing and mixed media. These skills, coupled with his ability to merge the technical world of design with the emotive and often sensitive world of visual art, has created a style that is distinctively his.
Neil’s prime objective when painting is to explore and to have fun. By constantly experimenting and introducing new mediums he is able to maintain passion and excitement toward his work. His work is usually on board as it offers a robust surface that allows him to glue, screw, nail or rivet items to the surface. The items that are attached are usually recycled or found objects, chosen because of their texture or colour. Neil’s work is bright and bold and is guaranteed to stimulate your imagination.
